Helo Everyone,

I have two machines one Ubunto 12.0 with strongSwan and one a Openwrt router running strongswan

I am configuring a simple host-host topology with secret key ( password).  I ran >>ipsec  start --nofork on ubuntu machine and >>ipsec up  conn  on Openwrt router .You can see below that I get error of No_PROPOSAL_CHOSEN.
I haven't set any ike and esp and I chose ikev2.  Do I need to chose some specefic esp/ike for both sides? I though by default they should be able to select proper protocol.

Or there is something else missing here.

Appreciet yor help.
